On Wednesday, September 5, the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants will officially kick off the 2012 NFL season at Metlife Stadium. By Week 5, we’ll hit October, in which the NFL celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To join the fight, brands represented throughout the league supply their endorsed players with pink-based gear, including gloves, belts, socks and cleats. If you’d like to get an early jump on your footwear for October, Under Armour’s high-cut Highlight recently arrived in an eye-catching Tropic Pink colorway.

Worn by UA athletes like Cam Newton, the Highlight is a super high and ridiculously light gameday cleat. CompFit construction not only supports your ankle, but allows you to chance direction and acceleration faster than ever. Molded 4D Foam forms to your foot for optimal comfort and reduced pressure. The CoreSpeed chassis in the outsole charges your natural motion, flexibility and acceleration.

This cleat features varying pink tones in a camouflage print the upper. Contrasting white branding marks appear along the collar and toebox, while a white Micro G cushioned sole digs into the turf below.

As a spectator, it’s hard not to take notice of the Under Armour Highlight Cleat. High-cut cleats are typically reserved for lineman going to work in the trenches, but the Highlight was worn last season by speedy players at all positions. The selling point here is that instead of layers and layers of tape that will inevitably weight you down during gameplay, the Highlight is built with a form-fitting CompFit ankle that delivers a snug fit for a boost in speed in stability.

Additionally, there’s a CoreSpeed chassis that enhances the foot’s natural motion, flexibility and acceleration, helping deliver superior mobility on the field. Foot-forming 4D Foam in the footbed helps the foot stay locked in and comfortable. A 3D molded MPZ tongue uses Under Armour’s lightweight padding for extra foot protection. Lastly, lightweight bladed cleats provide superior traction for quick cuts and acceleration. This heavy duty cleat tips the scales at just 10.3 ounces.

Priced at $130, these new Under Armour football cleats currently available in various colorways, including Newton’s Process Blue/Black style today at  Eastbay.

Tonight, Under Armour will officially debut its new football commercial, “Cam’s Night Out,” on the NFL Network during the 2012 Combine. The new spot depicts a Friday night in the life of Under Armour’s star football athlete and 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year, Cam Newton. In the clip, the club is replaced by the field, and renown producer AraabMuzik provides the soundtrack that inspires Cam’s training. Under Armour’s new Highlight cleats and Baselayer help him perform quicker, lighter and stronger.

The 60-second spot celebrates Cam’s commitment to training and the style, individuality and flair that define his dynamic performances. Products such as the new Highlight Under Armour football cleats, launching on April 6, have innovation designed for the needs of the new generation of multidimensional football players. The high-top design eliminates the need for spatting or taping which add weight, and the new Compfit technology provides a tight, compressed fit that keeps your foot locked in for speed and support.

Featured in the commercial, AraabMuzik created original music on the MP3 player for the spot as well as an additional track that’s available to download now
